 Green Vegetables

Nearly all of the green vegetables, however, have the property of alkalinizing the blood and improving the action of the bowels; the majority also have a more or less favorable effect upon diuresis, and some contain substances which stimulate the digestion.
One of the most important of the leaf vegetables is spinach, which is in general very easily digested; for this it is necessary that the spinach be prepared as a smooth purée, and not served with the leaves entire, as is the custom in some countries, in which form it is less digestible.

 How do I get my kids to eat more green vegetables?
The deeper the green, the more nutritious it is. Broccoli and spinach, for example, contain more beta carotene (a potent antioxidant and precursor to vitamin A) and more vitamin C than the lighter green vegetables, such as string beans.

Green Lettuce: Salad greens (not to be confused with the pale and nutrient-devoid iceberg) such as deep-green leaf lettuces like romaine, radicchio, endive, chicory and arugula are good sources of beta-carotene.
